Watch – Afif Hossain’s Brilliant Caught & Bowl To Dismiss Shivam Dube
The young Bangladesh cricketer Afif Hossain once again displayed his skills at the highest level to compliment his cricketing skills. The right-handed all-rounder had a good day in the middle with the ball and ensured to do his best for the team in the first half so far.
Coming to the catch, it was in the 16th over of the game when he was handed the responsibility by the skipper Mahmudullah Riyad. Justifying the decision of the captain, he delivered it brilliantly by sending the debutant Shivam Dube back to the hut.
Afif Hossain registered 1/11 in 3 overs:
Earlier, in the day, it was Bangladesh captain, who won the toss and elected to bowl first. Though the first few balls went against them, the inswinger of Shafiul sent Rohit Sharma back to the hut while KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan tried to settle things further.Shivam Dube made his debut today.

However, once again, KL Rahul found a way to get dismissed in an unfortunate way while Shikhar Dhawan didn’t get the right momentum to showcase himself in the middle. Meanwhile, Shreyas Iyer tried to turn the things with his quick knock but, in the end, it went down as cameo after being dismissed for 22 runs off 13 balls.
It was followed by the wicket of Shikhar Dhawan, who scored 41 runs off 42 balls. It was a surprising knock from the southpaw, as the wicket was expected to be batting friendly. On the other hand, Rishabh Pant also failed to get the runs at a good strike rate.
It certainly made an impact on the score and Bangladesh always looked on the top of the game. Just when things looked tough, Washington Sundar and Krunal Pandya gave the perfect finish thus giving the reasonable score on the board to make things look good for India. At the end of the innings, India scored 148 runs on the board.
